I have young twins and having worked full time as a Sales Executive for many major fortune 100 companies for the past 20 years, I understand the struggles of working parents. Having moved into the area with the boys I also understand the issues of finding quality trustworthy care for my children. It was such an incredible struggle to find a nanny, that I joined the College Nannies and Tutors family to help other families with this very important issue.
Hello! My name is Christina Coke an i'm 19 years old. I'm a full time student at Norwalk Community College as a Nursing Student. I two younger sister, 9 and 12 and i absolutely adore them. I'm very energetic and active, so i have no problem keep up with kids. I'm not the most athletic person , but i'm always ready for a challenge. I feel like having younger siblings will help me to be the best nanny/babysitter because i half know what to expect and how to handle certain situations. I'm fun loving and try to give everyone a good experience.
I believe that I am a great role model to the children and families I have worked with for various reasons. One of the first being that I am very determined. Not only did I graduate high school early because my GPA was so well and I had so many credits , but I have also just finished my second year at the University of Massachusetts Amherst as a double major political science and legal studies student. On top of this, I have been participating in Mock Trial for four years now. I am also proud to say that I am the vice president for my college's team. I have received various mock trial awards, including winning the worlds best witness award at an international competition that I competed in during my senior year of high school. I believe this is a great depiction of my high level of dedication to tasks that I am presented with. I have also been a huge performer my entire life. Growing up I spent the majority of my time dancing, acting, performing in musicals, cheerleading and playing field hockey. Currently my newest interest is dancing with hula hoops and learning how to do tricks with them. I love doing creative and new activities because of how the challenge me while I have so much fun participating in them.
Lead by example. I am results oriented and have seven years of educational experience across all abilities and age groups, with a focus on special education and learning disabilities. I set clear goals and develop plans to achieve them. Goals without a plan are simply wishes.
I have traveled and seen some of the greatest sights this country has to offer, from the Great Lakes, through the plains and mountains and into redwoods of northern California. I attended middle school and high school in the Wilton public school system, and found that by the time I attended university, I was well prepared for the task at hand.
I attended the University of Connecticut at Storrs where I studied for and acquired a Bachelors of Science in Physics with a minor in Mathematics. The years I spent there are unforgettable and filled with a wide range of character building experiences and absolutely intriguing people. Studying physics took a lot of mental tenacity and has permanently altered my ideas of work ethic and mathematics in general. While I was there, I was often tutoring my friends and acquaintances free of charge, as the experience and knowledge gained was rewarding enough. I have been enlightened about the difficulties of math and science many people face, and have learned what it takes to truly explain such abstract concepts to people beyond their comfort.
I am extremely excited to help and inspire younger students as I feel the middle school and high school years are a critical time to acquire problem solving skills and good attitudes. I look forward to all the relationships that await me.
